Source – If your Canadian currency has Chinese writing on it, it’s fake.
That’s the message RCMP in Campbellton, N.B. had for people in the area on Wednesday, after receiving reports of fake $20 and $100 bills with Chinese writing on them.
Northeast District RCMP have released a photo of one of the counterfeit twenties, which shows pink Chinese writing printed quite clearly over the clear panel on the polymer bill. A black track is also visible at the corner of the bill. Not that you need to see that to tell.
“These bills are distinct in that they have Chinese writing on them,” police said.
“Residents and businesses are advised to carefully check bills during transactions and immediately report any suspicious bills to their local RCMP detachment.”
If you have to check those bills carefully, you are a total idiot and shouldn’t be taking money anywhere ever so scratch that the last sentence.
Whoever printed these cosmically hilarious bills is an insult to organized crime overseas and will probably be dead before you read this but fuck, this is right up there with a guy that tries to pass a 1,000,000 dollar bill for a pack of smokes at 7-11. Maybe even more epic.
And remember “If your Canadian currency has Chinese writing on it, it’s fake.”
